Spoon!


All I can say is about friggin' time. Finally, 10 years after it premiered on Fox, Ben Edlund's crazy-brilliant animated show is coming out on DVD. I can, at long last, destroy those shitty bootlegs I bought at San Diego two years back. Ben Edlund goes on the list of people who are too scary-smart to exist in the same world as the rest of us hacks.

(I recall someone saying, when John Rogers posted on his blog that Ben was set to write an episode of Global Frequency, "You were gonna be Ben Edlund's boss!" John replied, and I quote, "I will be blunt—in no way shape or form would I have been Ben Edlund's boss. I would have been the guy who ran the show Ben was working on. The very second he finished his first story pitch, I thought 'Shit, now I'm going to have to spend a year pretending I don't secretly know he's a much better writer than I am.' ")

So, I rejoice.

Damn well disappointing. Really curious which episode will be missing, and why...
